    Abstract: An optical switch having a plurality of ports outputs an optical signal, which is input from one of the plurality of ports, from another port. A quality compensator perform quality compensation of the optical signal output from the optical switch, and input the quality-compensated optical signal to the optical switch. A controller selects, among the plurality of quality compensators, a quality compensator that performs quality compensation according to the degree of quality deterioration of the optical signal when the optical signal input from a predetermined port of the optical switch is transmitted through a transmission path. The controller controls the optical switch so that the optical signal, in which quality is compensated by the selected quality compensator through the optical signal input from the predetermined port being output to the selected quality compensator, is output from the port corresponding to a transmission destination of the optical signal.

  • Patent number: 11811448
    Abstract: In an optical communication system, an optical communication device and a plurality of optical transmission devices are loop-connected via transmission line. An optical signal transmission unit of the optical communication device, when no communication interruption occurs in the transmission line, outputs an optical signal addressed to a communication destination device that communicates with the own device to a transmission line connected to either one of two neighboring optical transmission devices. The optical signal transmission unit outputs, at the time of communication interruption occurring in the transmission line, an optical signal addressed to the communication destination device to both of transmission lines connected to respective two neighboring optical transmission devices.

  • Publication number: 20230308174
    Abstract: The optical communication system includes the optical distribution device (100) provided between the wavelength routing device (30) and the optical multiplexing/demultiplexing device (40). The wavelength routing device outputs the optical signal input from the port on the wavelength variable subscriber device side to the port uniquely determined by a combination of the wavelength of the optical signal and the port to which the optical signal is inputted. The wavelength variable subscriber device can execute the first protection for switching the wavelength of the optical signal to be transmitted and received to the spare wavelength different from the operating wavelength when the wavelength variable subscriber device and the wavelength variable communication device (10) are disconnected.

A communication path between the master station device and each of the slave station device includes a normal path and a backup path. The master station device performs communication control processing for each of the slave station device based on RTT. A first slave station device is a slave station device with which communication through the normal path has become impossible. First backup path RTT of the first slave station device is calculated based on first normal path RTT of the first slave station device, first partial RTT between the master station device and the looped path, and loop propagation time necessary for one trip through the looped path.
